The Syndicate Year One

Marcelo Somers is celebrating the one year anniversary of the The Syndicate Network this week. For anyone that is not aware, Marcelo runs The Syndicate as a side business and has a limited number of sites he works with. It’s an approach I like.

Marcelo is writing a lessons-learned retrospective that’s very interesting. It’s not so much about marketing as it is about starting a small business. Here’s a high level overview that I think tells a compelling story all on its own:

  • The Roller Coaster
  • Don’t Act in Desperation
  • Build Relationships, Don’t Sell
  • Apologize Profusely
  • Invest During the Good Times
  • Starting Your Own Business
